Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender oil is processed mainly from the flowers of the lavender plant. This oil has been used for centuries in aromatherapy and perfume making. It comes from the Latin word Lavare, which means “to wash”, due to its aroma which has a particularly clean aroma. It blends well with other essential oils such as sage, geranium, nutmeg and cedar wood. Lavender essential oil can be used by adding a few drops to the bath, mixing it into lotion or massage products, or applying it directly to the scalp or massaging into the joints for pain relief.

HEALTH BENEFITS

 

ACNE and SKIN CARE

Considered by the skin experts as one of the most beneficial oils for acne, lavender essential oil prevents the bacteria, that causes the initial infection, from forming and regulates the over secretion of sebum. It also does a good job of reducing the signs of scarring after the acne starts to heal. Lavender is also used to treat wrinkles, psoriasis, and other inflammatory conditions and is commonly used to speed up the healing process of wounds, cuts, burns, and sunburns because it improves the formation of scar tissues. Lavender oil is also added to chamomile to treat eczema.

 

HAIR CARE
Lavender essential oil is useful for hair care and is good for all hair types. Furthermore, lavender essential oil has also been shown to be very helpful in the treatment of hair loss, particularly for persons who suffer from alopecia, an autoimmune disease where the body rejects its own hair follicles. It is a good treatment for dandruff and itching, helpful in controlling hair breakage and improving hair growth. A Scottish study reported that more than 40% of alopecia patients in the study reported an increase in hair growth when they regularly rubbed lavender essential oil into their scalp. Daily massage with lavender oil has proven to help significant re-growth and gives you the results in a few months. Therefore, lavender oil is sometimes recommended as a preventative measure for male pattern baldness! Lavender oil blends well with many other essential oils including jojoba, rosemary and tea tree oils.


Blood Circulation
Lavender essential oil is also good for improving the circulation of blood in the body. It also lowers blood pressure and is often used for hypertension. This means that not only do the organs increase their levels of oxygenation, promoting muscle strength and health, but brain activity can have a noticeable boost, skin remains bright and flushed with blood, and the body is protected from the risks of heart attack and atherosclerosis that is often associated with poor circulation. Additionally the application or inhalation of lavender essential oil can prevent some of their serious risks of low circulation, which can lead to dangerous or even fatal complications.


Immunity
Regular use of lavender essential oil provides resistance to a variety of diseases. It’s anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties makes it an excellent defense against certain types of diseases.


Insect Repellent
The smell of lavender essential oil repels insects such as mosquitoes which is a major issue here in Jamaica. Apply some of the lavender oil on the exposed skin when outside to prevent these irritating bites. Furthermore, if you happen to be bitten by a mosquito or a moth, the lavender essential oil has anti-inflammatory qualities that will reduce the irritation and the pain associated with insect bites.


Nervous System
Lavender’s strong aroma and calming scent makes it an excellent tonic for the nerves and has a soothing effect on those who suffer from stress, anxiety and mental illness. A wonderful treatment for insomnia and heart rate regulation, this oil showed remarkable results when used to replace modem medicine for patients suffering from sleeping disorders. A few drops on your pillow will work wonders for restful sleep.


Pain Relief
To relieve tired, sore and aching muscles massage the affected area; also great for backache, sprains, and muscle tension.
Urine Production:
Lavender essential oil is good for urinary disorders because it stimulates urine production and restores hormonal balance in the bladder.


Disclaimer
Lavender oils should not be used directly in women who are pregnant or currently breastfeeding, diabetics, persons with unusual skin sensitivity. Excessive use can result in nausea, vomiting and headaches. It should never be ingested.

Cleanse- Wash your skin thoroughly on a daily basis to remove the dirt, debris,

pollutants, and perspiration that has accumulated. Avoid bar soaps as they

tend to dry out the skin. Consider a creamy cleanser for dry skin or a clear

cleanser for oily skin.  For normal to oily skin wash with a gentle cleanser. After

you have found a cleanser that works well with your skin type stick to it as much

as possible. If you have dry or sensitive skin, use only warm water to wash your

skin and use a mild natural cleanser every few days. Brushing your teeth before

washing your face is a good practice because toothpaste residue can irritate

sensitive facial skin. Be careful though, not to cleanse too often and remember

to wash at night before going to bed. Most women prefer the water method:

Use warm water to loosen dirt and clogged pores. Use a dime-sized bit of

cleanser, and then rinse with cool or lukewarm water. You'll also want to take

off your makeup with a proper makeup remover.
In the morning, a splash of lukewarm water is all you need (we find it's great for removing excess oils from your nightly moisturizing). Never wash your face with hot or cold water (both can cause broken capillaries). Also be careful about over cleansing skin, see signs you are over cleansing your skin.

 

​​​​​

Exfoliate- This is a great part of any good skin care routine because the results are immediate when done properly. Most people skip this step in their weekly skincare routine. Scrubs work by removing the top layer of dead skin cells that tend to dull your complexion. Make sure you use a gentle scrub with tiny grains. Big grains in cheap scrubs can tear skin and cause more harm than good. Where the skin is not exfoliated on a daily or weekly basis, dead skin cells build up causing your skin to look dull and older. Some experts recommend exfoliating in the morning, since the skin repairs itself at night, when the dead skin cells can be scrubbed away.

 For best results scrub once or twice a week, rubbing in a circular motion for 30 sec. then rinse with lukewarm water. Proper exfoliation means that your foundation will smooth out more cleanly and your moisturizer will soak in more completely.

 

Moisturize- Unless you have very oily skin it is important that you moisturize every day to keep your skin hydrated and healthy. Your skin needs moisturizer all year long as both the indoor winter heat, and summer sun can be equally damaging to your skin.​


Protect- Use a natural sunscreen when possible, regardless of whether or not you plan on spending much time in the sun. Our skin needs sunlight every day but over exposure can have adverse effects. Experts recommend a natural sunscreen or a moisturizer that contains sunscreen with at least an SPF of 15, every day. The sun’s most beneficial rays occur at sunrise and sunset. The skincare experts agree that sunscreen is the most important part of any skincare regimen.
